This paper offers new empirical evidence on the role of researchers in their contribution to socioeconomical development through the analysis of interactions and knowledge flows that are established between these actors and social groups. The specific target of this study is to identify and quantify the precise modalities of knowledge transfer activities undertaken by researchers, as well as to identify those who participate to a greater or lesser extent in these processes, and why they do it. This research is based on a Statewide survey conducted on September-October 2007, applied to academic researchers working in research and development organizations in the state of Sonora.
